This is your basic guide to help you capture your favorite memories from all those old tapes, like your VHS, Hi8, Digital8, MiniDV and HDV tapes. You will learn how to easily capture them to your computer and/or external hard drives. We’re going to focus on the consumer versions of cameras and technologies and skip a few older formats that had lower use, like Betamax.
